Former TNA wrestler Samoa Joe was the recent guest on Chris Jericho’s podcast “Talk is Jericho”. Jericho asked Joe a number of things like his best match in TNA, his best opponent till date, working with Kurt Angle, his Muscle Buster finishing move, working with Vince Russo, reason for leaving TNA, possibility of signing with WWE and much more.
Below are 4 interesting things that came out from the interview.
4. Working with Vince Russo
Samoa Joe didn’t say anything negative about Vince Russo. He acknownledged the fact that Russo talked a lot crap about him when it was revealed that Russo was working with TNA and was then released, but Russo later admitted that he was stressed out and was under pressure.
Joe said he didn’t have much problem with Russo’s work, he agreed with some of his ideas while he disagreed with some as well.
Joe feels that a lot of times Russo was being named the culprit for some storylines that he had nothing to do with. Sometimes the “Fire Russo” chants were being made during a match which had nothing to do with Vince Russo.
